Simply didn't work for me
on 31 July 2013
My Dell XPS was in serious need of some help. It ran very hot and I had to re-install the OS to get it working a little while ago. I decided to but this 'mechanic' to ensure I could fix the XPS and keep it running. Installed, no problem and did a deep scan which highlighted 8 major issues, i think 2 were 'critical' and t button that said 'click to fix all' Obviously i pressed it thinking this was great, however all hell broke loose.
My system restarted and asked me to remove the disk from the drive and restart, it then said it couldn't detect the HD at all....I restarted and booted from the Windows 7 disk but while it did recognize the HD again it refused to boot and 'beeped' like crazy.
I am no techie, which is why I bought this software...wish I didn't now. I might simply be unlucky or it might be that this product isn't quite all that it claims to be?
A previously working if not slow and noisy lap-top is now dead and I am £20 lighter...I hope you have better luck than me.
